Hostos Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassador

Developing Leaders for a Changing World Ambassadors are the first line of students utilized as a resource of Hostos, CUNY and the Bronx. They are recognized as high-achievers who are dedicated to their roles as servant leaders. They attend conferences, give testimony at hearings, and support the administration and CUNY central at a variety of events and locales.
  • Ambassadors are required to maintain a GPA of 3.25 or higher and take six or more credits each semester.
  • Each Ambassador commits to one year of service and agrees to serve 40 hours of community service each semester that they are in the academy.
  • Student Ambassadors also provide mentorship, support, do community outreach and plan and implement community service activities for the larger group.
In order to become a student ambassador you must go through an interview process and provide letters of recommendation, a resume and documentation of unique and service oriented activities that you have been a part of in your life.

The Student Leadership Advisory Council provides guidance and support to the members of the academy and takes on a mentorship role with individual students throughout their stay at Hostos Community College. (Members of the Student Leadership Advisory Council are made up of faculty, staff, alumni and the Student Leadership Coordinator.)

The Hostos Student Ambassadors receive specialized training in workshops specifically designed for their needs on Fridays from 3:30 to 5:30 PM. Workshops are provided in debate, public speaking, voice and diction, mask making, ethics and etiquette, leadership skills, parliamentary procedure, effective mentorship, writing skills and job skills preparation. In addition, winter workshops are offered to help enhance the skills of the members of the academy.
